REU Site: Applied Mathematics Research Program for Undergraduates

This program allows undergraduates to participate in research programs in various areas of applied mathematics with applications in other scientific disciplines. In a cooperative, grade-free learning environment, students will learn analytical and computational methods for real-life applications. They will be well-prepared for rigorous graduate studies at the interface of mathematics and science.
Support: A stipend, housing and travel assistance are available to participants.
